Even if his license is suspended due to some aspect of his DWI cases, he should be eligible for what is called an Occupational License, which would allow him to drive for certain "essential" purposes like work, doctor's appointments, etc. You should contact an attorney to assist you in getting him one of these licenses because driving without a valid license could land him a probation violation or a new criminal charge. Good luck to you.
My comments are not intended to establish an attorney-client relationship, are not confidential, and are not intended to constitute legal advice. Proper legal advice can only be given by an attorney who agrees to represent you, who reviews the facts of your specific case, who does not have a conflict of interest preventing the representation, and who is licensed to practice in the appropriate jurisdiction where the legal issue may be filed or in the state where the law applies.
Because he had 2 contacts within 5 years, he has a hard suspension and does not qualify for an occupational for part of that time. He should contact DPS directly and ask them how long the "hard" suspension" is (which means no occupational.)
There is no way to get the license back, other than an occupational, during the time of suspension. And, if he gets convicted of driving with the suspended license, it will make the time of suspension longer.
